What our Building Surveys include

Our Building Surveyors take great pride in the quality of our Building Surveys and produce a very detailed Building Survey Report, whether it is for a Residential property or a Commercial property. We use plain English in our Building Surveys to explain any problems with the property to ensure that you understand the problems and how to resolve them.

Georgian properties like those found all over London


In our Reports we include many photos and sketches to explain any problems to you.

We use Super Optical cameras and all the very latest and best surveying equipment available and we also have thermal imaging cameras if needed.

Telephone contact is also always available and we are happy to speak to you as many times as you need to discuss any issues you may have.
